The [Eastern] Roman [Byzantine] Empire A.D. DLXV by Kuusinen The [Eastern] Roman [Byzantine] Empire A.D. DLXV by Kuusinen
This map depicts the Eastern Roman Empire at the height of its geographical extent, in the year 565, following Justinian's reconquest of Italy, North Africa and Spain. Also pictured are historically accurate (given the accuracy of my source) province borders and names, as well as regional capitals and ecclesiastical capitals of the pentarchic regions.

Complaints about grammatical failures in the Latin spelling/translation will be redirected to Google Translate ;)

Great job.  I like how you show that Byzantine Africa was considerably smaller than the original Roman Africa.

Very cool, but are you sure you've got Italy's provinces right? I think what you've marked "Aemilia" should be "Transpadana" instead (as with this map; www.storiadimilano.it/citta/Po… )..."Aemilia"'s a region to the south that survives today as "Emilia".

That might be the case, I have no idea as I did not research the names by myself, they were copied from a book I read on the Byzantine Empire. If I remember correctly, its an old piece this one, and I'll hardly be updating it, but thanks for the tip :)
